Miresse & Zeppa Families-Montefalcone-Cemetery/Church In

Postby smaress » 16 Apr 2010, 13:38

I would like to know if there is a local cemetery in or near Montefalcone (BN), and if so whether there may be any records of burials for my Miresse and Zeppa ancestors. Also, I would also be interesting in knowing if anyone local to the area might be able to locate and photograph gravestones for my known ancestors. Another area I would also like to explore is to identify any Roman Catholic Church serving the village, and if there is a way to contact the church. I would appreciate any thoughts anyone may have.
Thank you.

Headstones are few and far between in southern italian cemeteries, particularly for smaller towns where land is scarce and usually occupies the highest part of town surrounded by pine trees as you no doubt have noticed in pictures. The usual burial practice is internment in a wall or below ground for 20 years or so and then the remains are collected and deposited into a comunal pit to be recycled. This may well be the case for Montefalcone cemetery. The cemeteries are usually church owned property. =Peter=

The church may not have a resident priest (there is no telephone which is an indication) so records may have been moved elsewhere. =Peter=

Actually, Peter, there is a phone number in the current Italian yellow pages. The listing I previously posted for this parish was from a website about Italian parishes and, on that website, there was no phone number for the parish.

To be on the safe side send an e-mail to the "segretaria@diocesibenevento.it" and if no answer send same e-mail to
"arcidiocesi@diocesidibenevento.it" as an alternative requesting location of records or whatever other information you may be seeking. =Peter=
